a few of my favorite things

I've just been sitting here trying to decide what to write about, as I'm long past due for a new post, and as I was sitting and deciding I was also munching. On a triple cheese panino, my favorite cheap-but-still-good-and-not-too-far-away-to-walk-to lunch option. I was really drawing a blank and was going to give up and navigate away from this page, until on a whim I looked down at the sandwich in my hands that was almost gone. When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature cheese star, and a tiny crumb galaxy.
Naturally I took a picture on my soon-to-be-retired phone to share with all of you lovelies. I certainly had no intention of creating this little guy, I was just absent-mindedly biting away at my sandwich, but apparently even my subconscious has a penchant for those five-pointed figures. I like it. And that last star bite was just delicious.

Speaking of celestial orbs, tonight there is a full lunar eclipse! I'm choosing to be excited about it. I love an eclipse that gives me full permission to stare straight at it. I will love it even more if I get to enjoy it by the glow of a fire in a snowy meadow in the midst of mountain peaks. Let's make it happen.

I'm really annoyed that I like this song by Ingrid Michaelson. I am fervently opposed to Old Navy commercials, and all their people slowly sauntering towards each other in strangely empty feeling spaces. And this song was a part of that. It's a huge conflict of interest. But now that I've heard the full version and the part about buying rogaine, well, it's a little harder to dismiss. I just don't know what I'm going to do. Help me decide?

I am glad to hear that you have chosen to be excited about the eclipse.

Too many negative people have chosen to be angry about it.

They are having protest tonight at the planetarium.

Well, I guess we all have a choice to make...

A paninO? Really? What are they getting at over there?

Man, I hate those Old Navy commercials. Haven't heard the song in question, though.

Singular. Panini is plural. The Marketplace Cafe is the only English-speaking place that's got it right.

1. Anything triple cheese sounds delicious. I am going to have to notice if I bite sandwiches into bell shapes.
2. I loved running outside to check on the eclipse, even though the icy ground made my feet cold. It was cool looking.
3. Old Navy commercials - bizarro world. That song - I like it. I love when people make creative lyrics.
4. This comment is from your mother- I forgot how I normally sign in.

That song is definitely boring. :(
